The Lonesome Ace Stringband is a trio of Canada's finest players taking old-time, Appalachian music to the extreme. The band, all members of The Foggy Hogtown Boy, came together in 2008. The music they were coming up with as a trio seemed different enough, from what they were doing with The Foggy Hogtown Boys, to warrant a new band.

Their music features blistering fast instrumentation accompanied by their three unique vocal stylings. They have released two critically acclaimed albums since their inception, Old Time (2014) and Gone For Evermore (2016).

The Lonesome Ace Stringband is comprised of:

Chris Coole (banjo/vocals). A sensational claw-hammer banjo picker who has been on the old-time and roots music scene for twenty years. He has taught at banjo workshops and camps internationally. Chris has released several albums, under his own name, and with the The Foggy Hogtown Boys. He has collaborated with a variety of great roots musicians including Arnie Naiman, Erynn Marshall, Ivan Rosenberg and David Francey.

John Showman (fiddle/vocals). One of Canada's finest fiddle players. He is a strong and versatile musician best known for his work with the The Foggy Hogtown Boys, New Country Rehab and Creaking Tree String Quartet. His love of traditional fiddle music is palpable everywhere as he brings the music to life with his inspired playing.

Max Heineman (bass/vocals). His bass playing supports and compliments the music expertly, both driving the rhythm and gliding right along with the melody to give the trio its distinct sound. His powerful and unique voice carries the listener straight to the heart of the music, with a timeless quality that harkens back to the classic folk and country singers.
